Fish, ants, and other

My kids are into Nemo these days. Ellie asked me the other day, "Why can fish breathe in water? Why can't they live outside water?" I said,"Because God made them so."
I suppose we can all learn to swim. But fish are born to swim. Even Ian Thorpe can't live in the water. It's a special "talent" or "gift" that God has put in fish.
Looking at ants I sometimes wonder how on earth these little creatures know so much about weather forecasting and team work.
Almost every animal is good at something. Some are good at smelling, others like running,etc. And God puts all these special skills in them according to His will.
I think it's the same with the spiritual gifts. God puts different gifts in different people according to His will to bring glory to His name. But there's a difference between a calling and normal spiritual gifts. For example, we can all learn to prophesy, but prophets has a higher annointing and capability. We can all sing, but those who are called to be worship leaders have a special talent and gifting that's created by God and it's different than everyone else. Just like, we can all swim, but fishes live in the water!
I think it's very important for us to know what our calling is. Also it's very important to know what your children's callings are so you can help training them in the areas that they're called to excel. No point spending all your money and energy in art classes if your child's calling is to be a soccer player, right? It would be a very hard job for the fish to learn to smell and the dogs to learn to swim. They can learn a bit, but dogs will never beat fishes in swimming.
We are all very different, but we're all good at something. Do you know what your calling is?
